I’ve received a second copy of Chrissie Manby’s new book called ‘A Fairy Tale For Christmas’ and I would like to share the festive cheer and give the book away to one lucky person. I recently read and reviewed this book and it’s a lovely heartwarming story.
The story of ‘A Fairy Tale For Christmas’ is –
It’s the festive season and the members of the Newbay Theatre Society, more commonly known as the NEWTS, are preparing to put on a show. Being cast as Cinderella is the realization of a dream for newcomer Kirsty, not least because she hopes starring in a panto under the direction of her boyfriend Jon will bring them closer together.But Kirsty soon learns that it’s not all glitter and good cheer behind the scenes at the amateur theatre as bitter rivalries nurtured through decades, wardrobe mishaps and suspicious near-fatal accidents threaten to derail the production. And then there’s Prince Charming himself. Will working together with Jon bring Kirsty her happy ever after… or reveal their love to be nothing but a ‘showmance’?

Mike Gayle is back with a new book this Autumn called ‘The Hope Family Calendar’
The story of ‘The Hope Family Calendar’ is –
Tom Hope is broken. Ever since his wife Laura died he hasn’t been the same man, and definitely not the same father. Luckily for Tom his mother-in-law Linda is around to pick up the pieces and look after his two struggling daughters, Evie and Lola.
But Tom getting arrested on the first anniversary of his wife’s death is the last straw for Linda.
In a last bid attempt to make Tom reconnect with his daughters she takes drastic action and leaves for Australia. With two fast-maturing daughters Tom has to learn how to accept his responsibilities and navigate the newly discovered world of single fatherhood – starting immediately.
With only himself to rely on, will Tom fall back into grief or finally step up and be the father his girls need?
As a huge fan of Mike’s, I’m really looking forward to reading ‘The Hope Family Calendar’

If like me, you loved Virginia’s debut novel, ‘What Milo Saw’ then you will be delighted to hear that she is back with a new book in 2016 called ‘The Astonishing Return Of Norah Wells’.
The story of ‘The Astonishing Return Of Norah Wells’ is –
One ordinary morning, Norah walked out of her house on Willoughby Street and never looked back. Six years later, she returns to the home she walked away from only to find another woman in her place. Fay held Norah’s family together after she disappeared, she shares a bed with Norah’s husband and Norah’s youngest daughter calls Fay ‘Mummy’.
Now that Norah has returned, everyone has questions. Where has she been? Why did she leave? And why is she back? As each member of the family tries to find the answers they each need, they must also face up to the most pressing question of all – what happens to The Mother Who Stayed when The Mother Who Left comes back?
I cannot wait for this release!
